If we did do this for real...
We were playing bar trivia last night and during the music round my husband starts mocking a song that came on as I was trying to figure out the title. I turned to him and yelled “Shut up!”
He shut up, immediately, and left me to my serious business of coming up with the correct title to the Mumford and Sons song that was playing.
After the round I apologized for telling him to shut up. He said he didn't care- we are both ultra competitive and our trivia nights are deadly serious, so he gets that I am in the zone.
It lead me to think though about spanking, and domestic discipline, as I'm wont to do. We don't practice domestic discipline, but would this have been a spankable offense if we did?
I am left to wonder about this a lot. I approached my husband about the idea of domestic discipline a while back, his response was “You would punch me in the face.”
I thought he was crazy with that comment, until The Remote Throwing Incident. About a month ago we got into a heated exchange in the kitchen. I stalked off to the living room and began furiously flipping through channels. My husband came in, oblivious I was still pissed, and started chatting with me. I tossed the remote in his general direction and got up to go back in the kitchen. Only I have bad aim, and when I say I 'tossed' it- it may have had a bit more power behind it. Needless to say my husband got into his own little snit when the remote lightly grazed his man parts.
The illustrious Katherine Deane suggested that maybe he should have spanked me when I later told her of the exchange. I'm not saying I didn't think about it after the fact. But seriously, if he decided right then and there that he was going to spank me for tossing a remote in his general direction, I may not have punched him in the face, but it would have gotten ugly.
I am wondering though if this is because we don't have this agreed upon dynamic. We aren't practicing domestic discipline, so yeah, it would have been weird for my husband to spank me with any other intent than to get me off. But what if we were practicing DD and we had agreed upon things beforehand. I am wondering what my reaction would have been then.
Leads me to, what would be a spankable offense in my house.
Cursing? Nope, I curse like a sailor and luckily so does my husband and it doesn't bother him that I do.
Rolling my eyes? Really? I am rolling my eyes at the screen right now.
After much thought, I think it would have to be things I decided on, otherwise I would just feel like he was being a jerk.
Possibly being late- really the only thing I am late for is work, and I would rather get spanked than go to work... actually I would rather get spanked than a lot of things.
Maybe overdrafting my bank account? Adult things I have not yet mastered...
Paying my bills late, that I tend to pay late every single month even though I know the due date is upon me and set a reminder in my phone- yet still manage to not get the stupid payment in on time.
Really I guess things I repeatedly do that even annoy the shit out of me, yet I can't seem to stop.
I don't see this happening anytime soon. But it is something to fantasize and write about.
